Because of a glitch in the registration process, we've run into the problem of having too many members added to the active list above the maximum limit of 20. Please be aware that we will be moving members above 20 registrants to the waiting list in the order of their registration times. People will then be added to the active list as we have withdrawals.
Join us on Monday morning for a little challenge this week. We will stay within a D2 hike but push the elevation just a little this week. If you've ever wanted to challenge yourself or take a hike to the top of Kennesaw Mountain but all the events were just too difficult for you, this is your event.
We'll take a slow pace to the top of Kennesaw Mountain. It's roughly 1.2 miles to the top and around 650 ft of elevation. Reach a new goal and take in the great view from the top.
We will plan to go back down the mountain on the paved road to avoid any possible wet or slippery trails. We'll head off on a side trail and pick up some milage along the bottom of the mountain before returning to the visitors center.
We will meet at the Visitor Center by the cannon, just outside the lobby for sign-in. Please arrive at least 10 minutes early to check in, and be sure to allow time for parking. The Visitor Center lot tends to fill up completely throughout the day, so you should plan to park at the auxiliary lot down Old Hwy 41 - - about 1/4 mile past the traffic light at Old Stilesboro Road. Allow an extra 10-15 minutes to park there and wallk to the Visitor Center.
There are bathrooms there, so by arriving early, you'll have time to use them.
|How to Get There:|
1) I-75 North to exit 267B Hwy 5 Canton Road Connector
